@aerofoil: Exactly, you can't win really. The options are;
- Keep it accurate to the comics, as a white guy (which, ngl, is somewhat important to his character) and get called racist because you didn't cast an Asian dude
- Cast an Asian dude, and get called racist for perpetuating the "all Asians are martial artists" trope.
Damned if ya do, damned if ya don't.
